$126 million winning lotto ticket yet to be claimed

The owner of a $126 million-winning lottery ticket has yet to claim his loot.

Lottery officials say the winning Mega Millions ticket was purchased at Seabras on Wilson Avenue in Newark last week.

Newark residents have a number of theories about the winner's identity. Some have theorized that the winner is either an exotic dancer or an illegal immigrant.

The brand new millionaire, whoever it is, has one year to claim the cash. If the winner is actually an undocumented immigrant, all he or she has to do is present a passport and papers showing a country of origin.
